Matej Mohorič (born 19 October 1994) is a Slovenian professional road racing cyclist who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Team Bahrain Victorious.[3] Mohorič turned professional in 2014.[4] He is the Slovenian road race champion for 2018 and 2021.


Born on 19 October 1994, in Kranj, Slovenia, Mohorič currently resides in Podblica, Slovenia.[4][5]

Mohorič won the 2012 UCI World Junior Road Race Championships[6] and the 2013 UCI World Under-23 Road Race Championships,[7][8] becoming the first rider to win world junior and under-23 titles in consecutive years.[6]

He signed with Cannondale, a UCI ProTeam, for the 2014 season.[9][10]

Mohorič signed with Cannondale–Garmin, a UCI ProTeam, for the 2015 season.[11][12] He was named in the start list for the 2015 Vuelta a España,[13] but he withdrew on the 6th stage.[14] Subsequently, it was announced that he would join Lampre–Merida from 2016 on a two-year contract.[6] He was named in the start list for the 2016 Giro d'Italia.[15] Mohorič secured his first Grand Tour stage win when he soloed to victory in Stage 7 of the 2017 Vuelta a España. In Stage 10 of the 2018 Giro d'Italia he took his second win in a Grand Tour, winning a two-man sprint against Nico Denz.

In July 2019, he was named in the startlist for the 2019 Tour de France.[16]

He participated in the 2020 Tour de France and the 2021 Tour de France, garnering two stage wins in the 2021 Tour after crashing out of the Giro two months before. His second victory came the day after a police raid on the Bahrain Victorious hotel stemming from allegations of doping; Mohorič celebrated his win by 'zipping' his lips, adding in a post-race interview, "At the end of the day I’ve got nothing to hide. I don’t care too much."[17]
